We went to a fun Valentines themed party at our friend Katie's in Huntersville. Annie ate enough frosting to last a lifetime.
I continued to love the Harris YMCA where Annie made these darling crafts. Who needs preschool when you have a gym daycare like this? (Kidding, of course)
James took Annie to clean the church one Saturday while I stayed home to sleep. Annie has loved wiping anything and everything since. We are teaching her young.
The infamous picture of my Annie girl. I took her to nursery one Sunday and when she came out her hair looked like this. In her defense, it was in pigtails to start with so she had a little extra help. But really girlfriend? Where do you come from. I can't help but look at this picture and thing how much she's grown in just two short months.
We went to the nature museum one day with one of our best pals Avery. Isn't this old tree stump cool?
Because every monthly post needs a good sleeping shot.
One night when we got in the car to go get James for dinner (we try to meet him once a week) Annie said, "Dada, Worky, Chicken, Rice." I busted up. Apparently we eat waaay too much Chipotle.
My new calling is keeping me busy. It's crazy to see the difference between events from Utah to NC. I am really having to tone it down with the enrichment nights. It's quite refreshing actually.
More playing at Noah's Art. I love watching Annie's creativity grow. Such a little artist.
Feeding Baby Lulu a bottle.
Annie is really learning to love her veggies. Eating straight Kale. I've got to admit, I can't even do that.
Staying busy inside while its cold outside.
James and I went to a fun new restaurant called Baku for Valentines Day.
We had some great park weather towards the end of February. It was so heavenly. I could really see how happy Annie was to be outside that first day. This was a day I will cherish. I just loved the look on her face that day. I love my job.
Snack time after gym time. You can really see her big bump on her forehead here. She fell off the couch with a puzzle piece in her hand and got this little cut and bump. She kept picking the scab off for weeks so we finally had to put a bandaid on it for several weeks in order to get it to heal. She still has a little scar to show for the wound.
The highlight of February was a visit from our dear, dear Suz! Oh how we love her. We were so glad we got to soak up a few fun days with her before she moved back to the West Coast. She was even nice enough to watch Annie for me one morning while I did some errands for Relief Society. She is such a cherished friend and one I can't live without. It meant the world that she would travel to see us. We love you Suz!
More art time with my girl.
We met up with several friends for art time at Noah's Art. I love this photo. Childhood creations. Nothing better.
Lastly, I couldn't help but see a little resemblance here with my Grandma Staples. I think I am the only one that sees it in the family but to me it is so strong. Something about the bottom half of her face remind me so much of Meridean. I love finding little gems like this. Makes me fell my Grandma all around.
